Ebola is a form of population control: Chris Brown

Los Angeles: R&B singer Chris Brown has revealed that Ebola, which has killed more than 4000 people in West Africa, is a kind of population control.

The 25-year-old singer took to Twitter to make the controversial statement about the disease. "I don't know... But I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control. It is getting crazy bruh," he wrote.

Brown received backlash after sending out the tweets. "He has obviously ignored Twitter's key rule: Think before you tweet. This is a global emergency about three countries struggling with a deadly disease, countries whose health systems are under immense strain," Jane Moyo, a spokesperson for British charity Action Aid, said.

The first person who was diagnosed with Ebola in the US passed away last week and a Dallas nurse who had "extensive contact" with him during his treatment was also infected.
